I give you the size.

That is a line.

Look in the box, I may be in it

Could it be

One wrong character, and it all goes away,
but without me, almost everything would stay,
Forums, Noobs, and I don't go together,
No one likes my cousin, but for some things he's better.

rm? with rm -r?

I was thinking rm -rf but -r by itself would work well enough, the cousin is rmdir =]

So that's the only one that hasn't been resolved.
It's hard but let's guess.
ls
However I'm not sure about that last part "line", however it gives the size of files and content of directories.

I was too fuzzy in the description, and it needs a clue:
size content_well_not_quite\n...

I'm not sure what the "That is a line" means.

Err... I may not be that good at explaining.
That is one line of output of the program:

If you did not know the command before, it will still be challenging.

Last clue: it is in POSIX
